    in my thread i noted that even the bookmarks.bak file was stripped or replaced

    bookmark.html and .bak are both set to the default one you get when you first install dfirefox and i was so mad..

    still em!!!

    Might be a good idea to right click copy your profile and paste it there or on a different partition/drive - or even mail it to yourself via gmail.

    this is all i use....

    Author: Pike

    Bookmark Backup is a simple extension that helps to keep your bookmarks (and optionally other Firefox settings) safe. Each time Firefox is closed, a copy of your bookmarks file will be made to a backup location. If Firefox's bookmarks become corrupted or lost, find the most recent uncorrupted backup and copy it into your profile folder.

    What's new:
    * Changed the passwords checkbox in the Options dialog to also backup pre-Firebird 0.7 style password files (e.g. 1234567.s) since people with old profiles may still be using that style of file.
    * Added an Italian (it-IT) locale, contributed by Giovanni Francesco Solone of eXtenZilla.it.

    Install

    Thanks to lynchknot for heads up.

    Everytime i close firefox imy favorites are saved.
